Right off the bat, the 3 new tracks are worth the price of admission. "Oh Be Joyful" is just an incredible rocker - maybe his best balls-to-the-wall asskicker since "Generation X-Wing" !!
Having said that, my only beef with this collection is the lack of any tracks from "Audio of Being". I've seen him live 3 times, and he's played a grand total of one song from this album, one time. For some reason, Mr. Good seems to have a hate-on for what is possibly his best album.
Inevitably, most people are going to quibble about the track selection for any "greatest hits" package, but to ignore an entire album is a tad 'weird', to say the least. (But then, noone ever accused Matt of being stable.) Therefore, only 4 stars out of 5. Otherwise, the selection of tracks should please most folks.
The second CD includes some strange acoustic versions of other tracks, and although a bit jarring on first listen, I found that they grew on me quite a bit after a few listens. (Some of the selections are from "Audio of Being" - yay !)
I'd like to see a live DVD like the Hip recently put out - but somehow I don't think that will ever happen. So as far as DVD's go, this is probably going to be it : a compilation of his videos. Still, they're enjoyable to watch as they're a lot more interesting than 99% of the dross one encounters on MuchMusic these days.
